I've always loved books. Ever since I could remember, stories have always fascinated me. The humdrum of my life forced me to seek the excitement that could be found in books. As Belle had said (in Disney's Beauty and the Beast), "far off places, daring swordfights, magic spells, a prince in disguise..." fairies, witches, wizards, what-have-you...What can top that?
Escape from my boring ordinary life doesn't entail shopping-till-I-drop excursions (but this isn't a judgement on those who love these kinds of things!), but journeys into an alternate reality, a fantasy world with kick-ass heroines and warrior-princesses, where women are strong enough to make certain choices and take charge of their destinies, including that scrumptious man they want to spend the rest of their lives with. These are women who do not wait for their 'heroes' and 'princes' to rescue them. They are the ones who save the day! (or try to.
But let's not forget the mysterious mage with his strong magic and to-die-for body, or the handsome prince with his white charger and unique fighting abilities. And a wicked sense of humor. That is a must!
I love heroes and heroines who I can identify with, i.e. characters who are flawed, who have their own sets of strengths and weaknesses, who find love and passion in each other's arms. So, these are the kinds of stories I write. Or hope to write.
To continue with my story, real life has been pretty boring until... until... that day in June 2004 (of course I remember, it's a momentous day in my life!), when one of Loose Id's editors contacted me for my full manuscript. Mind you, it's not even acceptance for my manuscript yet, but my heart was already bursting with joy. Good thing I didn't expire from extreme happiness. :)
